Strawberry season is here! If you haven't already got your fill of June's sweetest treat at the farm stands, here are two ways to enjoy them.

Strawberry Shortcake Day is Saturday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor. "Bring the whole family," the church suggests. Admission is $5 for kids and $8 for adults.

On Sunday, June 18, it's Wainscott's turn. The Wainscott Sewing Society will host its annual Strawberry Festival from 2 to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 for children under 12, $10 for everyone else.
